“Through contemporary eyes, the static shots and urban milieus of Black Girl seem to solidify Sembène’s filmmaking as an aesthetic neighbor to the emotionally-walloping neorealism of the Italian De Sica. Black Girl may not evoke the immediate adoration of something as universally beloved as De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves, although the latter film’s deft interweaving of personal-is-political social commentary with the rueful, everyday messiness of the lives of the marginalized working class began a storytelling tradition that is gloriously carried on by Sembène. Black Girl has all the skillful stylistic simplicity of your typical piece of neorealism but also packs a sharper bite and it’s electrifying to watch Sembène craft a twisty drama with the piano-chord tautness of a thriller that is nonetheless coated in such a rare and wryly intimate form of humanity.”

CMO’s Log – A to Z – C is for Cold
You’ve been absolutely run off of your feet for days. At the Enterprise’s last stop, someone on
board had picked up a horrible rhinovirus and it had traveled through the air
ducts, circulated throughout the ship, and gotten damn near everyone on board
sick. Med bay was full of patients
coughing, sniffling, and sneezing, and you were doing everything in your power
not to get caught in the virus’ crosshairs.
It’s your seventh straight day on shift as you’d been called to fill in for a
half dozen nurses who were also suffering from the cold and you’re wondering
to yourself how medical science has been around for centuries and yet it still
has no answer to the common cold.
